Effective Auditing of Physicians' Documentation

The federal governmentís increasing interest in fraud, waste and abuse heightens the awareness of physician practices, both large and small, of the increasing scrutiny of physician documentation to support billings. In the past, audits are performed and physicians were lectured but all too often little improvement was noted. How can practices efficiently and effectively audit physician services? If we audit and have a bad result, what are the next steps? This educational, on-demand webinar focuses on understanding the regulatory landscape, why the audit process is important, the factors that are important to the audit, documenting the audit and outcomes management.
